(2062-01) Balancing design, construction, and maintenance priorities is critical for a successful golf course renovation but getting the best results from sometimes competing interests can be challenging. Architectural goals may cause maintenance issues, construction factors may negatively impact the architectural process, and issues with any area of the project may lead to unhappy golfers. In this seminar, we will outline strategies for planning and executing a small- or large-scale golf course renovation project and give you a better understanding of the design, construction, and agronomic considerations that influence the process.

We will enhance these points by taking an in-depth look at the restoration of Pinehurst Number 2 and the preparations for the 2024 U.S. Open there with golf course architect Bill Coore and Pinehurst Number 2 superintendent John Jeffreys. When golf course superintendents, builders, and architects collaborate and communicate effectively they can avoid common pitfalls and deliver a renovation project that provides enjoyable golf for decades to come.
